For some historical events that have occurred, we have no system of representation, no analogies, no experience.
We’re talking about catastrophes of a new type for which neither our eyes, nor our ears, nor even our vocabulary are adapted. All Unsaved Progress Will Be Lost is a sensorial journey that questions our fears and our ability to resist the very worst through the testimony of a survivor who refused to evacuate her home. Voluntary prisoner of a space made unfit for life, she shares her vision of the event in a fantasized environment made of concrete and fog, that represents the projection of an original land where no return to the sources is possible.
It is only at the very end that we are revealed what the story is based on, and without this information, the unnamed threat is silent, inexplicably imminent, and leaves the viewer to project their own fears of a possible future catastrophe.
The Premiere took place at the Venice Biennale as part of the Immersive official selection. It has since been shown at over twenty venues - exhibitions, festivals - around the world.
